    Confirmed... MAGGY bad.... Testing the HV Diode proved impossible with a Digital Multimeter. Found a 12 vdc source, and an incadescent lamp. put in series with diode. One way, light came on just barely, other, light stayed off.



    Thanks for the response,

    Mike

Right on!. yup, you should be able to figure out how to swap the magnatron. Take the old one apart - they have 2 great magnets inside.

My nn-s963bf starts operating when door is opened


The electronics have lost their marbles. When a nuker door is opened the safety switch connected to the door is designed to turn the unit off and not on. You just better work fast when you put stuff in or take it out!!!!!!!

Our Whirlpool over the range microwave makes a clicking sound for a few seconds then shuts the microwave off. The microwave is unusable. The sound seems to be coming from the control panel.


If the cooling fan is not working, that would explain the shutdown problem. The function of the fan is to cool the magnetron down when it is warming or cooking the food, if the fan fails to run, the thermal fuse will detect heat rise causing a shutdown with in 5 seconds or more, the clicking suggest fan issues. I would recommend a whirlpool technician to go through the system.

Ge jvm1540dm2ww over the range unit: have a gas range and the fan on the above mounted microwave once in awhile turns on automatically while something is cooking on the range below it....


The heat sensor in the electronics panel senses the rise in heat from the stove below. Once the amount of heat reaches a certain level, the cooling fan turns on to keep the electronics inside the microwave cooled.

I wouldn't worry about it. mine does the same thing.

GE PROFILE MICROWAVE LIGHT CONSTANT ON NOW


JVM1650SH - May 27, 2017

(I'm also sending this to your listed e-mail address, but with full details.)

I see (and repair) this problem a lot. The problem is on the controller assembly. Details here.

At my Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line.

Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

FixYa doesn't notify me when there's a response, so if you have other questions, please contact me directly.

Damage to samll rectangular material inside microwave


Well, I have just spoken with a reputable, but now retired, appliance repairman, he advised that this small rectangular cover on the upper interior of the microwave is a MICA Insulator Shield - of which one may be able to purchase just the shield. At this time, I do not know if any appliance parts places have this MICA Insulator Shield available for purchase. But apparently you can purchase a pice just slightly larger and cut the right size for replacement.

If the old one is burnt at all, or has a hole or crack in it - Do Not Use the Microwave.... as it will begin to arc and likely through out the breaker and/or fry the magnatron.

GE JVM1650SH Stainless Steel 1000 Watts Microwave Oven?


It sounds like you may have had an issue with a high voltage part such as the magnetron, diode, or transformer. It's also possible that you had an arcing stirrer. I would also check to see if your model is covered by / affected by this bulletin: http://microwavedisplay.com/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

No heat


If you can't fel the cooling fan blowing air out the back, then that increases the chance you have a bad magnetron. Since this is 1-1/2 months old, it is still under warranty. I would call GE or Sears for warranty service. If you break any seals opening it up, you'll void the warranty. It's almost certainly not the capacitor, those virtually always short when they fail, resulting in a blown fuse. If the transformer's bad, there is often the smell of electrical burning, but the cooling fan may weaken the smell. Try smelling the fan exhaust after it has run. It's most likely the magnetron, from my experience, but it could be a shorted HV diode. Some GE models sem to have had a batch of bad magnetrons, but I don't know if they have publicly acknowledged that. Again, since it's under warranty, the best bet is to call the manufacturer or an authorized GE servicer. You can find those numbers in your owner's manual and need to have your sales receipt handy of course when you call. Good luck.
